4. Building sales funnels
Global online sales are projected to reach 4.06 trillion U.S dollars by 2020. A sales funnel is a series of pages that help generate as much money as possible online with the least amount of resistance. Master the art of sales funnels by looking at every sales funnel that you come across and write down all of the key components that they have. Then reach out to businesses and teach them how sales funnels will benefit their company.
5. Social media management
Social media is about the conversation. It’s about staying in front of your audience at all times with the right content that fits their needs and interests. According to eMarketer, six out of ten business owners still weren’t seeing an ROI from social media activities from a poll in 2015. Business owners are great at running their business, but they don’t know how social media works. Most social media platforms are based off algorithms that function in different ways so make sure you know the difference between each platform.
6. Google AdWords
With this skill set, you are marketing and creating ads on Google. This has been around for quite some time and is still very effective. There are many business owners who don’t use Google Adwords regularly. Set up a sales page properly to pass Google’s advertising policies, find out how to target people, and send your ads or ads of your clients across the web.
7. YouTube marketing
YouTube is the runner-up to Facebook with 1.5 billion active users per month. If you choose to market on YouTube, you are creating videos that speak to your future customers and clients. Optimize the videos so that they can be found easily. Make sure to have search terms in your video’s description so that people can find it and know what your video is about. Then, promote your business from your videos.
8. Influencer marketing
74 percent of people base their buying decisions on social media networks. Reach out to social media influencers who have a large following and ask them to promote your business. They’ll give you their fee, and you’ll get to show your products to their audience. Offer a special code with an expiration date for the product and watch the sales fly in.
9. Instagram marketing
Instagram marketing can be done by selling your own products, selling affiliate products or managing Instagram accounts. Whatever the case may be, Instagram marketing is extremely hot right now seeing that 65 percent of top-performing Instagram posts featured products.
There are many businesses who need help growing, managing teams and inspiring employees. Pick a niche that you’re knowledgeable about and contact business owners and CEO’s to get on a discovery call with you. Then what you’ll want to do is show them what they need in their business, and ask them to join to on another call which will be the presentation. This is where you will ask for their business.
Now that we’ve covered many skill sets that can easily make you $10,000, pick the one that resonates with you the most and focus on it until you make it happen.
